After Instagram and Facebook, Twitter has also introduced the “stories” option that lets users post media or text that disappear after a certain time period. These stories on Twitter are called Fleets.
Currently, there is no way to get rid of the feature altogether, but we got a mute option. If you don’t want to see someone’s story or simply don’t like the stories to appear on the top of your Twitter feed, you can mute them.
In this guide, we will show you how to mute fleets on Twitter.
Muting Fleets on Twitter
The procedure to mute fleets from your account is a little frustrating as you will have to mute them one by one. Here’s how:
First open the Twitter app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. At the top of your Twitter feed, you’ll find the fleets ribbon. Stories from your following list will be displayed here.
Moreover, you can only mute a Fleet from someone who has recently posted one. Tap and hold the profile’s Fleet bubble to reveal more settings.
Tap “Mute @(Twitter user’s handle).
A pop-up will appear asking you if you want to mute the Fleets only or also the Tweets from the specified account. Tap “Mute Fleets” to just mute the stories, or “Mute Fleets and Tweets” to mute both.
Luckily, Twitter doesn’t notify users when their stories or Tweets are muted by other users. You can un-mute them by visiting their profile and tapping on “Unmute” next to the “You have muted Fleets from this account” message.
Even after muting Fleets by the users you follow on Twitter, the Fleet ribbon stays in its place on your feed.
